It didn't stop him from riding it all the back home where he is now in the process of fixing it up.


I may ride a little fast and someday it may catch up and bite me in the ass but maybe not if I give it just a little more gas.

Look what I found...

Saw this in front of the local cycle shop the other day. Got to meet Alvincullumyork (Ulyses' brother), who has it now. I feel like this XR is a celebrity in and of itself! BTW - alvincullumyork is a great guy, just like I imagine his brother is.

Thumb Wow!

Bravo! After picking away at your wonderful ride report for the last week I just finished. Book or movie deal in the works? Inspiration/motivation speaking tour? Whatever you end up doing for a job/career, they'll be lucky to have you!

Guess I'll keep my old, outdated 650L and pile some more miles on it. A testament to the durability of the Honda and you in more ways than one!

Well done sir

All the best!

Ulyses,

I checked out the link to this ride report in a thread about where you would ride if you had 6 months and $25,000. My answer was to ride Canada and Lower America (I live in Alaska) because the logistics of out of country travel scare me. Over the last week I read your whole thread and it was an absolutely inspiring read. I have had my eyes opened to how possible and amazing leaving the "comfort zone" could be.

If you ever head north to Alaska hit me up and we can do a tour of the micro breweries in the state (we have some awesome IPAs).

Thank you so much for making your ride and reporting on it.

I've been reading quite a few RR to gather info for a tour thru CA and SA hoping to join my two older brothers leaving fall 2015. Thanks for taking the time to share some great story telling sprinkled in with your unique perspective. Bravo... Ride On!!!!

No worries! Thanks for reading! Good luck next year, it'll be here before you know it!

P.S., What bike are you going to ride?

I hadn't ridden in a while and was looking for an escape when I found your thread. I could go on and on, but I think the best thing is just to tell you that I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.
